Murano Uranium Glass Duckling
« on: August 05, 2020, 06:40:41 PM »
This is an 11cm. tall duckling in uranium glass. I can't find one exactly the same but I think it's similar to ones made by Vincenzo Nason. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Green uranium glass from Murano would be very unusual in my experience. It's normally straight uranium yellow

Hello Christine, here's a photo of the duckling next to a uranium bud vase, which is definitely green. The duckling is unusual for uranium glass in that it's a minty green colour rather like Walther's emerald green. The blue vase has pale green/yellow uranium glass but I think the fish is plain green glass immersed in green/yellow.

The fish and the bud vase look fine for Murano uranium. The blue will tend to make the yellow look green. I'm not doubting that your duckling is uranium glass, just that he is Murano

Might be a helpful point - and might just be ignorable, but ... the colour of the duck(ling) looks to me like Teal rather than Green.

Hello KevinH, you're right it could be described as teal green. As I mentioned Walther use "smaragd" for one of their colours which translates as emerald or teal green. I've added a photo to show the "waistline" on the duckling, just up from the bottom. There are a couple of ducks on the 20thcenturyglass.com website with a similar feature in the V. Nason section, in clear blue and amber.

 :) People do percieve colours differently - it depends on the numbers of cones at the back of the individual eyeballs. Women tend to have more than men and thus, generally, see more unique colours.
This has no teal in it, to me. It is green.

As I thought there are two definitions of teal, teal green and teal blue. Teal green being green with a hint of blue. As you can see from the new photo from the bottom it is definitely just green. From the side, probably due less thickness of glass and the finish, it does take on very faint blue tinge.
